The lorax

One of the first books I started reading to my kids back when they were very little, The Lorax, is to many, an environmental classic. It turns out that  just this past week there was a story in the Wall Street Journal about a statue of the Lorax (owned by the widow of Theodor Seuss Geisel), that was stolen from her property.

Actually it was stolen last year but it seems that the story finally has a happy ending. It was found less than a mile from their home. The complete article is entitled “At the Hilltop Home of Dr. Seuss, A Mustachioed Statue on the Loose” by Miriam Jordan over at the Wall Street Journal. As the article starts out:


If you look deep enough you can still see, today,

Where the Lorax once stood

Just as long as it could

Before somebody lifted the Lorax away.
